Over the past few months we’ve watched our customers do amazing things to overcome new challenges in a COVID world. Whether it’s moving an in-person practice to a virtual law firm in a matter of weeks or pivoting into a new practice area to deal with court closures, it’s been truly inspiring to watch and we are in admiration of your resilience.
Now more than ever, things that might have been considered “nice to have” for your firm just a few months ago have turned into downright necessities. For instance, it’s more important now than ever before that clients can pay your bills online since coming to the office is simply out of the question in many states. And let’s face it: collecting more on the dollar as efficiently as possible hasn’t ever felt more important.
That’s why we’re absolutely thrilled to announce the launch of the new, reimagined PantherPayments — our first all-in-one payment system that offers more features and lower prices than ever before! We are launching PantherPayments on the back of acquiring Headnote, a leading online payments platform for the legal industry, and have leveraged their technology to create this fully native, one-of-a-kind experience for our customers. We’re also thrilled to add Sarah Schaaf, the founder of Headnote and a former Google attorney, to the PracticePanther team. Sarah has considerable expertise in payments technology and compliance, and will be leading all of our in-house payments efforts.
So why should your firm start using the new PantherPayments? Frankly, it’s a game changer for our customers because it can help you maximize payments efficiency and supercharge your firm’s revenue in a few key ways:
Stress-free payments compliance
The new PantherPayments is 100% compliant with IOLTA, the ABA, and lawyers’ online payment rules in all 50 states, and PCI compliance is always included free of charge.
Low, simple & transparent pricing
Our pricing is so simple that you’ll never be surprised — just 2.8% for all credit cards, 1% for the industry’s only Same Day eCheck, and no monthly membership fees. You can always count on pricing consistency month to month and don’t need to worry about confusing, variable rates.
Happy clients & amazingly fast payments
Clients pay up to 70% faster than average and have more payment options than any other processors, including Instant eCheck and all major credit cards.
More features from the team you trust
Now you can get more payments features directly from your PracticePanther account so you no longer need to deal with multiple systems or third-party vendors, and all support questions go directly to the team you know and trust.
Ironclad security and infrastructure
The new PantherPayments is simply the most modern and secure option in the legal industry, including SHA-256 data encryption, cloud-based hosting, and tokenized payments. We take payment security seriously to give you complete peace of mind.
Simple set up, easy transition, cash back bonus
You can apply for access directly from your PracticePanther account, and making the switch from another processor is incredibly easy.
Simply put, the new PantherPayments is the most modern and feature-rich payment tool in the market and it’s available at the lowest, most consistent prices in the legal industry. Making your collections process more convenient and streamlined were top of mind as we built PantherPayments for lawyers like you and Porsha Buresh, Esq. We spoke with Porsha about her experience has been so far, and she beamed with enthusiasm: “I love the idea of one company handling all matters related to my cases. And since I already LOVE PracticePanther, I was thrilled at the idea of PantherPayments processing my credit card transactions. I just prefer the seamlessness of PracticePanther taking care of everything.” We’re excited for you to give it a try so you can see the difference it can make for your firm.
So what’s next?
If you’re not yet a PracticePanther customer, welcome! You can apply for access to PantherPayments for free and see the difference it can make in your billing process.

You’ve got nothing to lose besides the outdated payment processes you’ve been meaning to change anyway.
In all seriousness, we want to offer you the absolute best legal technology — whether it’s practice management or payments. We are extremely impressed with our customers’ resilience and sincerely grateful for each and every one of you. Thank you for being an important part of the PracticePanther family, and we’re excited to begin this new chapter together!
